Congratulations, Mario Lopez! You're Going to Be a Dad!

Mario Lopez and his girlfriend, Broadway star Courtney Mazza are expecting their first child, the Extra host announced March 10.

“Courtney and I couldn’t be more excited. I’ve waited my whole life to be a dad, this is a true blessing,” Mario, 36, raved. “I am looking forward to sharing this experience with my family and my family at Extra.”
